Chester Racecourse May Festival

At the beginning of May GL events UK heads over to Chester Racecourse, whose annual May Festival is the first of many race meetings supplied throughout the year and one of the best loved events in the North West.

For over 15 years temporary structures have been supplied by GL events UK to the Racecourse for its flagship May Festival.


The Racecourse required high-quality, attractive, prestigious temporary structures to be used for hospitality, catering and private chalets during the popular May Festival event.


  • 2,175sqm Absolute Eclipse structure divided in to individual chalets
  • Kitchens
  • Covered walkway between two chalet areas
  • Entrance to the hospitality village
  • Washroom
  • Toilets
  • Lobby
  • Ancillary

The on-site crew began the installation two weeks before the start of the festival.  All structures plus lighting and heating were complete in just nine days.


The smart and attractive chalets are very popular among racegoers.  Their close proximity to the track means guests are guaranteed a spectacular view of the action for the duration the festival.
